an improving economy. there's no reason a republican candidate can't win, the right republican candidate can't win this year in virginia and yet should be popular with conservatives because he sued to block the president's health care law. yet it looks like he's losing. chris christie will say i can win a blue state. the tea party guy can't win a competitive conservative state. republicans, you should learn a message. >> one of the things that affects virginia was the shutdown. because you have all the government employees in northern virginia, the shutdown was not exactly popular and you know, now of course, the fact that obama care is not functioning well should help cuccinelli to a certain degree but this was also raised about social issues an awful lot. it wasn't just a tea party, when you think of tea party, you think more of fiscal issues than you do of the social issues, and this became a race really for women voters in the state of virginia. >> were you surprised that chuck schumer, the democratic senator from new york, went to iowa to a democratic fund-raising dinner over the weeken
